Rediscovered Pictures from Vietnam

Charlie Haughey was not a trained photographer when he was drafted and sent to Vietnam in 1967. A couple of months into his tour, he was assigned to be a photographer, with these instructions:

“You are not a combat photographer. This is a morale operation. If I see pictures of my guys in papers, doing their jobs with honor, then you can do what you like in Vietnam.”

Haughey shot over 2,000 pictures, most of them unpublished for decades. Now they are being digitized and put online. See 46 of those photographs at The Big Picture. Link -via Metafilter
